Monday, back so soon!

I don't know about you, but my weekend went by WAY TOO FAST! Amazing how that happens! I only wish the rest of the week would go by so fast, lol! THere is ONE {or two} good things about Mondays...challenge time with the girls! YEAH! This week we decided to use Jessica Rose stamps! She created a bunch of SUPER AWESOME stamps for Unity and they're all SO fun and unique! I chose to work with the little trailer and sentiment from the August KOM: Remember Happiness! Lucky for you, Angela started releasing past KOM's for sale! Before, if you didn't get it that month, you were HOSED but Angela is so sweet and wonderful and listens to her customers saying "I WANT TO BUY PAST KOM'S!" What a sweet gal:D Okay, so here's my Jessica Rose card:

Isn't that paper PERFECT for this card? I bought it this weekend at the Arts and Crafts store on base! They NEVER have cute paper, so when I saw this, and realized how PERFECT it would be with this stamp, I had to get it:) It's by Around the Block {I think!} The stamps are in the August KOM! Fun stuff:)

Check out what AJ, Maren, Jennifer, and Brooke did with Jessica Rose stamps!
I've been dabbling in PS the past couple weeks, drawing up card sketches (it's SO FUN! I am totally addicted, lol!) This week is the first week I'm posting a card sketch challenge in the Unity forums! I'll pick a random winner {using Unity stamps} to win a little surprise from me! All you have to do to enter the contest is upload your card to SCS (or your blog, make sure to link back here or to the Sketch Challenge thread in the Unity Forum) by noon on Sunday, the 26th, and use the keyword "USCSC1" EASY PEASY! I don't know if you've noticed, but I LOVE details on my cards! Tons of details! My card sketches really showcase that, lol! If the sketch looks too involved or complicated, PLEASE alter it to make it easy for you! Sketches are all about inspiration and creativity so just let the sketch take on a mind of its own and have FUN!:)

This is the card sketch:
Please note, the big floral image is OPTIONAL but SO FUN to add! Think outside the box, it doesn't have to be a flower, check out my sample to see what I mean!
I used the big, beautiful butterfly from Butterfly Beauty! I stamped it in Versamark on Spring Moss {PTI} and then clear embossed it and cut it out! Gives the card TONS of dimension! The sentiment is from the fabulous sentiment set cdesigned by AJ Otto! It's called "Simply Said". LOVE this set and all the fab sentiments in it:) The dp is by SU! and it's from the pack called Muirfield! Love the blues and greens together:) The ribbon is also PTI and I added some glittery brads by Imaginisce to the top corner! I sure hope you play along with our sketch challenge!!!!!
Have a fantastic Monday:)
